What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
As the spinal cord is merely a tube of nerve tissue—not the bone spine that surrounds it—it can actually be surprisingly easy to damage it in an accident. A blow that would be considered quite minor elsewhere on the body can permanently harm the spinal cord. If you have been injured and you think it is affecting your back in any way, be sure to get medical assistance as soon as possible.
Accidents and incidents that can lead to spinal cord damage include:
Permanent Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
If you are feeling any soreness in your back or experiencing strange sensations along your spine, you cannot afford to brush them off as some sort of temporary problem. The reality is that they could be just the beginning of a major spinal cord injury. Without medical attention, something like a slight twinge could escalate into a lifelong problem.
The consequences of spinal cord damage are usually permanent ailments, such as:
- Chronic back pain
- An inability to sit or lie down without pain
- A lack of mobility
- A loss of muscular control
- Numbness in extremities
Having to take care of the symptoms of a spinal cord injury is sure to be costly. In order to avoid having to pay out of your own pocket for the treatments required, you need to consider taking legal action as soon as possible.
